This world-famous beer has the character and richness to stand in for fine sherry or port. Just the right degree of sweetness - never cloying; wonderfully aromatic and warming. EKU 28 is the one whenever something good and strong is needed.

Barley malt rum aroma and taste, hints of marcipan. Red light amber. Strong alcohol taste. It’s more like a barley wine.

Have you ever woke up after one too many and drank from that pepsi can sitting on your night stand only to find it flat with a cigarette butt in it? If you liked it try this beer.

Spiced banana like aroma is pretty promising, while the productive foam quickly dissiaptes. Alcohol flavor dominates and makes tasting notes difficult. Maybe interesting to a Whiskey drinker but in the words of Eminem, ’I say that shit’s just clowing dog.’ It was probaly good as yhe strongest beer in the world but doesn’t even get that title anymore. Still it’s a marketing tool.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Pleasant but a bit disgusting. A really strong flavor (caramel, matl) for a really strong beer, too much alcohol. Easy to find in france

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2002
Rich, golden red colour with little head. It smells sweet, although a not too sweet to put you off. The strength of flavour is immense, with a fortified wine taste about it. I couldnt drink too much of it, but its a nice tasting drink.

pilsnerrogge (2577) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2002
Almost no head. Orange colour. Tastes like cloudberries. But the alcohol-flavour dominates.

Copper color with a thin off-white head. A ton of alcohol and malt sweetness aromas throughout. There is a slight harshness to this beer as a result of this. May need a year of cellaring. It was an interesting night cap

RichardGretton (4366) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2002
This beer is like flat lemonade once poured as its head disappears in an instance. The aroma has a slight peach scent and the taste is of a very fortified beer. Due to the strength of the beer it is too difficult to drink.

maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Apperance: pours with a clear, dark amber-copper color and a light head of foam that settles very quickly. Moderate levels of carbonation make this a pleasantly lively lager. Aroma: Wow. Intense and very interesting/complex. Some nutty hazelnut aromas ride on top of a Solera Sherry-like base. A suggestion of sweetness. Flavor & Finish: Sweet entry, like an Extra Cream Sherry. The nut tones are somewhat surprising. This beer finishes with some warmth that travels down to the stomach. A very powerful, thick, sweet (but not cloyingly so), and heavy malt bomb with a long, long finish. A great sipping beer that you’d almost want to pour in a brandy glass. I love this beer.

Ernest (6516) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2002
Head is initially average sized frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (molasses, light bread, caramel), with notes of peach, honey, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Ack...corn syrup and vodka in a glass. The aroma is fine aside from the vapors, but still a bit dull.
